Learn more about this sculpture

The sculpture was inspired by the geometry of Platonic solids. The points of the figure correspond to the vertices of an icosahedron. From here, the edges delineate the inner geometry of this solid. The resulting inner surfaces approximate the shape of a regular dodecahedron. While mathematicians among us might notice that the sculpture most closely resembles the geometry of a small stellated dodecahedron, its beauty speaks to all of us.
